How could you upload anything without internet?? lol

The real article should be named:
What can you do without Xbox Gold Live.
-Media Services like Youtube, Netflix and others.
-Streaming with Twitch needs Xbox Gold Live permission.
-Video Chatting at and likes needs Xbox Gold Live.

Essentially, everything is behind an additional paywall. It's sh*t. You pay for something you'd normally get for free.
All those features can be done for free on the PS3 and PS4.

not even just ps3/ps4 but wii, wiiU, PC, android and iphone, ipad, smart TV

xbox is the only one with a paywall

except for the achievements (which is admittedly odd) did they really need to make a video saying that online dependent apps and games aren't useable/playable if you don't have internet?

to sum it up for those who want to save 7 mins of their lives... apps that require internet like store, netflix, youtube etc aren't accessable... all your gaming content is except the online multiplayer part... and for some odd reason pins (think that has something to do with them only being stored on the "cloud") and the achievements (thought i heard MS say both are stored on the system and cloud but meh) also aren't available

I noticed the other day when I didn't have internet that the ps4 needs to be connected to view trophies. With X1 you can view but not earn them offline which is really stupid.. but I uear the achievements you earn offline pop when you connect and are playing the game. Not an ideal solution though imo

The PS4 doesn't need to be online to view trophies.

I use Virgin Media in the UK and my service went down for an hour for maintenance, i was still able to view my trophies and also earn them in NFS Rivals while i waited on the service to turn back on no problem.

I'm unsure whether you can earn achievements on Xbone while offline but you can see clearly in the video you can't access them at all while offline to view at least.

No need to go making stuff up about PS4 in an Xbone feature article.

That video seriously made me mad, why the hell would u be able to play online on BF4 or COD or access internet based apps if u have NO access to the internet...What was the point in that video at all...pointless...not being able to access your achievements or pins is pretty crap but apart from that it operates exactly how I thought it would operate.....rubbish article....pointless....

You are a good example of a rabid fanboy. Nowhere in the video did he say he was disappointed or expected anything otherwise when it came to online features while playing offline. He was just covering all bases and yet you take it like an attack.

wtf no achievements thats dumb as hell. you sneaky bastards putting achievements behind the xbox live wall

cl19831572d ago

You have to be connected to the internet to see them since that info sinked to the cloud network it isn't hidden behind a pay wall.
